To treat MRSA, Vancomycin or other antibiotics in the same class are used. Other options may include: Flucloxacillin, Erythromycin and Ciprofloxacin.

I am not, however, finding any that start with an R. but it is possible that some doctors may use Rocephin, the active ingredient in Ceftriaxone, though it is not listed as being used to treat MRSA.


Do you have any other information, such as antibiotic class or anything on the particular one or ones you are seeking information on?

Bingo!!!! I recently endured A VERY LONG COURSE OF INTRAVENOUS VANC.MERSA is a brutal infection that requires vigilance and constant attention as the alternatives are very grim. I wouldn't wish this affliction on my very worse enemy. Thanks for sharing your history.Regards,Kenie.
